One Planet Cardiff Business Survey
Cardiff Council declared a Climate Emergency in 2019.
We know from our Ask Cardiff survey of that year that 83.9% of residents are concerned about climate change, and when asked if the Council is doing enough to respond to the challenge, half (49.6%) did not feel the Council is doing enough while 38.9% felt they don't know.
The One Planet Cardiff Strategy has been developed to outline how the Council can make Cardiff more sustainable and become a carbon neutral city by 2030.
The One Planet Cardiff strategy looks at 7 different areas of focus to make Cardiff more sustainable and become a carbon neutral city by 2030:
Reduce energy consumption in general, and our reliance on fossil fuels in particular.
2. Built Environment:
Manage energy consumption in buildings; reduce the heat and electricity energy demand of buildings by up to 60%.
3. Green Infrastructure & Biodiversity:
Re-prioritising the city's green infrastructure to increase and connect green spaces.
Encouraging the use of active travel and public transport; accelerating the use of 'clean' vehicles.
Boost recycling rates and minimise waste to make Wales a Zero Waste nation by 2050.
Minimise the impact our food choices make on the environment.
Preparing for extreme weather events such as flooding.
The strategy outlines what Cardiff Council plans to do for each of these areas, and how it plans to work with other partners, stakeholders and members of the public. Full details of these plans can be found in the One Planet Cardiff strategy document.
This survey asks which you think are the most important highest impact areas for Cardiff Council to prioritise, to support Cardiff becoming a low carbon city. We’re also interested in the actions that you as a business or organisation are taking in response to the climate emergency, what your successes have been in this area and what you think the barriers to your actions are.
